Postdoctoral candidate: assessing links between watershed characteristics and ecosystem health metrics in the fluvial systems of the North Saskatchewan River Basin
The Biological Sciences Department at the University of Alberta is looking for a motivated post-doctoral candidate to join our multi-disciplinary team that is assessing links between watershed characteristics and ecosystem health metrics in the fluvial systems of the North Saskatchewan River Basin.
The Department of Biological Sciences of the University of Alberta is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to work on the project "Development of a comprehensive geospatial tool for assessing watershed integrity and aquatic ecosystem health in the North Saskatchewan River basin". The aim of this project is to develop a geospatial model of watershed integrity, calibrated using multidisciplinary field-based data from selected tributaries in the North Saskatchewan River (NSR). It uses a paired monitoring and modeling approach to develop a geospatial tool that will ultimately allow the identification of potential areas of aquatic ecosystem impairment. This project is a collaborative initiative between the University of Alberta and Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP), and is funded by the Water Innovation Program of Alberta Innovates.
The selected candidate will be responsible for the:
In addition, the selected candidate will be working closely with geospatial and aquatic scientists of AEP to incorporate the developed stressor-response curves into the geospatial models of watershed integrity.
